It’s the one year anniversary of the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, something that I honestly never expected to happen. Although Snyder was able to included just about everything he had originally shot for Justice League, there were still a few scenes that wound up on the cutting room floor. Wayne T. Carr had shot a scene for Zack Snyder’s Justice League as John Stewart/Green Lantern, but Warner Bros. asked Snyder to remove it as they didn’t want anything to conflict with their future plans for the character. Carr took to Twitter today to show off an official look at him in costume as Green Lantern.
Zack Snyder did share this image last year, but it was simply a blurry image on his phone, so it’s great to see something with a lot more quality. “We did have a Green Lantern scene in the movie that the studio asked me to take out that I did also shoot here in the driveway with an amazing actor who was going to play John Stewart,” Snyder said. John Stewart/Green Lantern would have appeared in the epilogue of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but the character wound up being replaced by Martian Manhunter (Harry Lennix) in the final film. We’ve seen several behind-the-scene images of the sequence being shot with Wayne T. Carr decked out in a motion-capture suit.
It’s something of a minor miracle that Zack Snyder was able to bring his vision of Justice League to life but he still had more story to tell. The persistent fan campaign that resurrected the Snyder Cut in the first place has now turned its attention to restoring the entire Snyder Verse. While the story Snyder was building towards may never be completed (I should know never say never by this point), the characters he helped to bring to the big-screen will continue.
